Introduction to Sleeping your baby Safely

Webinars

Your baby will spend a lot of their time sleeping.  Knowing how and why to sleep your baby safely is so important.

 

Soteria Safe Sleeping Advice believes all children have the right to a safe sleeping environment.

However, we realise not all families have access to safe sleeping information because of many barriers – distance, finance, personal circumstance – which is why, in partnership with River’s Gift, a charity committed to funding research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and safe sleep education, we have developed a series of webinars focussing on ensuring the latest evidence-based information is delivered to all caregivers.

Whether you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, childcare educator or anyone caring for a baby, this series of webinars has a wealth of information to help you understand Safe Sleeping and what is a safe product; what is a safe practice; what is a safe place.

Product Safety - Myths & Marketing  $25

Since the introduction of the Safe Sleeping health promotion three decades ago, a lot has changed – years of research has identified that eliminating certain risk factors can reduce infant sleep accidents and death.  It has also highlighted that claims made by manufacturers are not always accurate so it can be difficult to know what is true, or just clever marketing.

 

Parents only want the best for their baby and might assume that everything available for infants must be safe; otherwise it wouldn’t be on the market, right? Unfortunately, not right…

Let’s make it simple, safe and save you money…

 

You will have learnt that not all nursery products sold in Australia are safe for your baby and Tthis session is designed to give you the tools to assess "is this the right product for me or my baby?"  We will show you what questions to ask when considering a product, whether this is new or second-hand – e.g. Do all products sold in Australia have to comply with safety standards? How will I be using this product? and more…

With the excitement of having a new baby or one on the way, you may be bombarded with lots of advice – from delighted grandparents, friends, even strangers – all well-meaning but not necessarily well-informed.

Join us to understand the facts and why safe sleeping recommendations are so important.
